TennisSection previews the 2023 Miami Masters first-round match featuring Quentin Halys vs Pedro Martinez on Thursday, March 23, 2023.
Quentin Halys vs Pedro Martinez Match Preview
Quentin Halys has a chance to even his win-loss record for the season. He enters this first-round match at the Miami Masters as the heavy favorite. Will the Frenchman prevail?
Quentin Halys is 10-11 for the season, producing his best run on Tour in Auckland and Montpellier, reaching the quarterfinals in both those tournaments. Halys touched a career-high #61 in January, although he is currently sitting at 79th in the rankings. Last week, he made the semis at the Phoenix Challenger and should like his chances of taking down Pedro Martinez at the Miami Masters.
Pedro Martinez has regressed badly in recent weeks. His title defense in Santiago came to a screeching halt as he lost in the first round there 6-2 6-0 to Yannick Hanfmann and now finds himself outside the world’s top 100. It’s going to be a long road back for the Spaniard as he enters this first-round match against Quentin Halys as the overwhelming underdog. Can he upset the odds and reach the second round of the Miami Masters?
Quentin Halys vs Pedro Martinez Prediction and Pick
Quentin Halys and Pedro Martinez have not played each other on the ATP Tour. Halys will be expected to power through the Spaniard in this one. The court conditions and the low bounce won’t be natural for Martinez who predominantly plays better on clay. Take the Frenchman to win at a canter and advance into the second round of the Miami Masters.
